Kazuko Hirabayashi Dance Theatre, the Manhattan based dance company celebrating its thirty-ninth year, will present six repertoire solos: A Pebble in the Field, Borrower of the Night, Ebb, Hibernation, Waning Night, and Mogamigawa; and premiere an additional section to Light is Calling (2009).

A Pebble in the Field: (2000) Kathryn Alter of The Jose Limon Dance Company dances a solo based on the Vietnam War, about a soldier who did not want to fight. Music is by Jimi Hendricks and to Simon and Garfunkel’s "Scarborough Fair".
Borrower of the Night: Kathryn MacLellan of Graham 2 dances a solo originally made on Christine Dakinethe role of Lady Macbeth, displaying her extreme eccentric desire to be queen, but fighting with her conscience to murder the king.
Ebb: (1979) Stacy Martorana of the Cunningham Repertoire Understudy Group dances the role of a young girl about to sell her body by the sea to a man who works for the railroad, eventually leaving her. Jack Anderson of the New York Times writes, “Ebb was the exception. Choreographed by Kazuko Hirabayashi to [‘Surabaya Johnny‘] by Kurt Weill, Ebb was a new solo for Marla Bingham during which Ms. Bingham tried to defy adversity with big, bold gestures and then crumpled beneath the blows of fate. Ebb was brief but pungent.”
Hibernation: (1982) Daniel Madoff of The Merce Cunningham Dance Company dances the role of a young priest on a rite of passage journey that he tries to understand, but cannot do so. Jennifer Dunning of the New York Times writes, “Kazuko Hirabayashi Dance Theater has always had good dancers. And Miss Hirabayashi is a poetic choreographer. The theme of Hibernation, danced to Buddhist chants, is regeneration, but it might as well have been a celebration of Robert Swinston, for whom the solo was choreographed. Mr. Swinston has a remarkably resilient way with movement for so tall, thin and generally reflective-looking a dancer. Now caving into his body like some ancient grotesque, now testing space or straddling into the ground, Mr. Swinston suggested a wealth of images, among them an Icarus rising with sublime innocence into the sky.”

Kazuko Hirabayashi Dance Theatre (KHDT), Inc. is dedicated to nurturing the artistic activities of young dancers and the choreographic work of Kazuko Hirabayashi. Formed in 1971, KHDT’s work is drawn from Ms. Hirabayashi’s unique background. It combines her firm base in classical and modern American dance with her Japanese heritage and its eastern philosophical and artistic assumptions.
